If you enjoy swimming in open water or the pool and are looking for a personal challenge and some competition, then look out in Term 1 for opportunities to represent Sacred Heart Girls’ College. Our Swimming Sports Day is an all-school House competition. There will be competitive swimming and non-competitive events worth house points.

Those wishing to represent the school in secondary school swimming competitions (NZSS & Wai SS) must participate in competitive events to qualify. Students affiliated with a local club taking part in swimming, synchronised swimming and diving are eligible. The clubs provide coaching and help to their members. The internet will provide you with contact details and information regarding these clubs.
